OK, so you’re going to a quiz night and you have to choose four women to form a kick-ass team to win with. This is a bit different from the past Choose Your Companions challenges, because you don’t have to particularly like these women. They can be absolutely loathesome – have Bellatrix LeStrange, if you can justify her – if they can bring to the table a worthy field of knowledge (or knows how to cheat and get away with it).
And the reason for four instead of three? Carnegies – the pub in Perth, not the music hall in New York – has a table limit of five at its quiz nights. Hence, you and four quizmates.
Rachel Berry from Glee. Normally, I wouldn’t so much cross the road to avoid her as detour two suburbs, but man, would she own the music round.
Dr. Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan from Bones. The woman is rarely at a loss for an answer.
Amy Farrah-Fowler from The Big Bang Theory. Because she possibly knows more even than Bones. And she doesn’t drink, so she can be our sober sister. (Though it’s debatable that she drives…)
Scarlett O’Hara from Gone With the Wind. She’s smart, loves to win and isn’t above cheating if the odds are good that she can get away with it. I’m sure it wouldn’t take us long to teach her how to use Google and a smart phone…
